Funding brief: The Paul M. Angell Family Foundation makes grants in three priority areas: Conservation, Performing Arts and Social Causes.
The Foundation’s Conservation grant making focuses primarily upon issues of ocean conservation. Priorities within Conservation are:
● Supporting the creation of Marine Protected Areas
● Encouraging sustainable fisheries management
● Eliminating illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing
● Conserving the world’s shark and ray species
● Limiting plastics pollution and other ocean debris
● Preserving coral species and ecosystems
Grant requests for other types of ocean-related conservation efforts may be considered on a limited basis
The goal of the Performing Arts program is to support the presentation and propagation of performing arts events, focusing on classical music and theater. Grantee organizations include performers, presenters (including broadcasters) and educators. They are currently considering grants to the Chicago area, Cleveland, Detroit, and the Mid-Atlantic Region (from Washington, D.C. north to Philadelphia, PA. Please note that we currently do not fund dance or film. They also do not fund individual commissions.
The goal of the Foundation’s grant making in Social Causes is to support efforts to address the root causes of poverty and inequality, particularly in urban areas. Priority will be given to programs that emphasize evidence-based early intervention and prevention approaches. The Foundation seeks to support efforts designed to help alter the life trajectories of socio-economically disadvantaged individuals and families. Specific areas of interest include early childhood education, teenage pregnancy prevention, school completion for at-risk youth, workforce preparedness, and African-American male achievement. Although not limited exclusively to Chicago, grant making in Social Causes will focus on the Chicago area.
